Wesley's Notes for Acts 5:29


5:29 Then Peter - In the name of all the apostles, said - He does not now give them the titles of honour, which he did before, #Ac 4:8|; but enters directly upon the subject, and justifies what he had done. This is, as it were, a continuation of that discourse, but with an increase of severity.
